While I think I might have the mechanics done in time, I'm worried about the chip.If I REPOWERED my car in 32 days(prior to tcg tour) you damn sure can make it good enough to a track day 2 hours away
Thats basically exactly the idea. The stock computer should be plenty capable of managing the power this engine will make without the cost of a full-blown standalone system.Probably a dumb question, but not schooled enough on Fords.
Why a chip vs a Holley system and Mike Post tune (or whoever your tuner is, used Mike as an example as he has a stellar reputation)
Is it due to the car only expecting 400-500whp (guessing on HP) and not worth the cost?
Everything has been delayed lately for the build for me too. Just got word that one of the parts I ordered is now discontinued. Well thanks for having it on backorder for months you assholes.Just ordered these up:
The exhaust issue and the chip not being here really took the wind outta my sails.
Honestly, I don't need any more stress in my life right now. I was pushing every night to be out there and missing any time I get with friends and family to keep pushing forward. I'm going to get a single track day for my efforts - maybe? Just not sure its worth it right now to push as hard as I was.
I was going to ask if you were going to put subframe connectors on it before taking it to the track. My '90 has wrinkles in the 1/4 panels from what I assume was body flex from hard launches before the last owner installed subframe connectors.
You need another fbody in your life Daniel.Thanks man. You're totally right. When you're in crunch time AND you're not 100% sure how to proceed on stuff (I'm a f-body guy, not a foxbody guy - plenty of tasks on this thing are like learning to speak French), burnout on the project is easy.
Axles will probably be fine, depending on what you plan on running for a tire and how hard you're launching. SFC are fine too. You're not going to hurt the car from one track outing. The torque boxes are what you would have to worry about the most IMO.
